Explain what important aspects of the land development code revision you support.

Justin Jacobson

City Council, District 3

I want to see code that allows for building diverse missing middle housing stock, decreased parking space requirements, respect of established neighborhood plans, better compatibility requirements, reevaluating average lot size & permissible amount of units, streamlined standards & rules for ADUs, more robust density bonus programs, preserving affordable housing stock, protected rights to notice and appeal of developments, and simplified build codes & permitting. Ultimately, this is all underpinned by a process that has greater buy in from ALL folks in Austin, unlike CodeNEXT.
